I have done it 14 times now. Written a book. As I hit “send” on my newest, UNTITLED HANK BOOK, last week, with that mix of delight and terror, I realized that the process I had just gone through for the past year or so, although different in many ways, is remarkably similar to the very first time. And to all the other times.
There is a cycle to writing a novel. There are predictable stages in the author’s emotional and creative journey. I wonder if your stages match mine.
